The Rural Municipality of Cana has entered into a Fire Agreement with the Melville Fire Department. Property owners are responsible for paying the cost of fighting fires on their property. Check with your insurance agent to determine if your fire insurance policy covers the cost of fighting fires. The RM advises to make sure you have a minimum of $5,000.00 for a fire call.

Controlled Burn

Any landowner planning to have a controlled burn on their property should contact the Municipal Office. They also need to advise the Prince Albert 911 Administration Center of their intent to have a controlled burn and indicate the date, time and location on which they are planning to do so. Failure to do so may result in a substantial fire bill if a well-meaning passerby calls in a fire report. Landowners are reminded that it is unwise to burn in very windy, dry weather and always provide extensive fire guarding before a controlled burn.

Prince Albert 911 Administration Center: 1-866-404-4911

Pest Control

The R.M. of Cana’s Pest Control Officer is Ron Lang. He works with the public to control the rat population within the Municipality. His contact numbers are: 306-335-2572 or 306-331-7455.

The R.M. Office has the following mouse and rat poison available for purchase:

  • Weatherblock $25.00 per pail
  • Ratak $2.00 per package

Health Canada under the Pest Control Products Act is cancelling the registration of strychnine, and all associated end-use products, used to control Richardson’s ground squirrels for sale and use in Canada.

The R.M. of Cana currently has a minimal supply of strychnine in stock with a limit of 4 bottles per rate payer available for purchase. Due to COVID restrictions and in order to streamline the sale of strychnine we will require all rate payers purchasing strychnine to complete the Purchase Agreement From (found on the main page of our website) and pay for the product in advance. Once forms and payment has been received we will arrange for pick up of the product.

See the fact sheet below for other options to control ground squirrels.
